This Is Your Brain on Camp

Posted: August 01, 2011

They say the brain is innately social and collaborative . . . which means it must be very happy at camp! Let’s start a “Feed the Brain Campaign.”

Feed the brain in a safe camp environment with steady doses of:

  • Challenges with low threats
  • Opportunities to talk and listen
  • Places to make friends and new acquaintances
  • Chances for variety and innovation
  • Time to problem solve and make decisions
  • Events that support resiliency

If you think these things are not important, consider whether you would hire someone who did not have a well-nourished brain — these factors can, in fact, tip the scale!
